Call: Competitiveness Romania

Type of Fund Structural Fund
Description of programme
"Competitiveness Romania"

The Competitiveness Operational Programme (COP) will address the challenges stemming from the low support for research, development and innovation (RDI) and the under-developed information and communication technologies (ICT) services and infrastructure. By investing in these areas, the COP aims to contribute to bolster the competitiveness of the Romanian economy.

The main direction of investment in RDI is to build a more compact and modern R&D environment that focuses on the businesses' needs. It will reinforce the RDI capacity of the country (resources and infrastructure), boost private investments in RDI, develop centres of excellence, strengthen the links between businesses and research institutions, and stimulate the creation of networks and clusters for developing new products and services.

The following areas of smart specialization identified in the 2014-2020 National Strategy for Research and Innovation will be supported by POC:

  • bioeconomy.
  • information technology and communications, space and security.
  • energy, environment and climate change.
  • eco-nano-technologies and advanced materials.
